Disaster

Maybe it was my fault for thinking I could do two things at once.  First I was making hummus and roasted eggplant/yogurt salad for dinner- to eat with pitas and some lettuce, tomato, and roasted red peppers.  This is the cubed, roasted eggplant with the Greek yogurt, a bit of honey, toasted and ground cumin and coriander seeds, and some cilantro waiting to be chopped and added.

Then I was also trying to make a caramel pecan ganache tart for Thanksgiving, and a few extra pie crusts to stash inthe freezer.  But, I had a would be helper who would not take "no" for an answer:

Eeew.  Actually, she gets her love of butter from her Swedish side (that would be me).

Crust rolled out beautifully...

"UP!"  "UP!"  "UP!"
I thought giving her the camera would buy me a few minutes to get the tart dough into the pan.  Too bad she had those buttery fingers.  It fell on the floor, for like the 20th time- but this time it broke.

See you when I get a new camera, everyone!

Oh, NOOOOOO! That sucks. And weren't you doing a bit more than two things at once? ;-)
